Webinar: Developing rating curves from measurements and models

Techniques to improve the accuracy and reliability of data over the full range of a system's flow regime

The calculation of river flow from measurements of surface elevation (stage) can be very accurate under ideal conditions, but predicted relationships between stage and discharge can also be hampered by tremendous uncertainty. Join us for this webinar to review the underlying concepts behind rating curves, discuss the latest techniques for collecting valid field data, and applying 1D, 2D, and 3D modelling techniques in the refinement of rating curves.
